Alyssa Hatcher 17 allegedly stole her parents’ debit card and used it to pay two people to kill them deputies announced on Tuesday

"This is a sad case when you think about the family dynamics and everything", Sergeant Fred Jones, of the Lake County Sheriff's Office, told Fox 35 Orlando.

The teen was arrested Monday night on two counts of criminal solicitation for murder.

She later found it and a piece of paper with her bank account information written on it in her daughter's room, according to the report.

An investigation quickly found that Hatcher had stolen the debit card. The first was for $503 (£407) and then the next was for $926.40 (£750).

Two different juvenile witnesses told officials that the teen gave them money to have her parents killed.

Detectives interviewed Hatcher's boyfriend, who told them he had seen her at a well-known drug house on the morning of September 9, where she informed him of her plan to have her parents murdered. The first transaction, according to the affidavit, was split into two parts: $100 was for cocaine while the remaining $400 was given to a friend to find someone willing to kill her parents. Hatcher's parents reported the stolen card and the fraudulent transactions to the Umatilla Police Department on Sunday.

Deputies said the girl's friend reported the crime to a school resource officer at Tavares High School, saying that Alyssa Hatcher paid "a lot of money" to a mutual acquaintance in order for that person to kill her parents.

Hatcher was nabbed and booked at the Lake County Jail where she was processed and turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.

"Since the act was never carried out she gave the other $900 to a black male to kill her parents", stated the arrest affidavit.

Hatcher's parents called police after they noticed they were missing a portion of their money.

According to the report, Hatcher's parents are pressing criminal charges against their daughter.
